Happy New Year to all Get Up
& Go readers – can you believe
This is going to be one of the
great years for all of us, and we
will have many stories to tell you, countries to explore, off-
the-beaten-track places to discover, ships to board and sail
away to who knows where?
In this issue we get you on track to try some of the world’s
grand train rides. And what a way to see the countryside
we choof through Russia, Switzerland, Scotland, Asia,
Australia, Turkey and, with new routes onboard – some
pretty spectacular journeys are to be had.
We’ve got Asia covered with features on Hong Kong,
Thailand, India and Brunei; and off we cruise along the
Vietnamese coast and in and around the coastal islands of
Norway with a special light show.
We’ll keep coming through for you with stories and ideas
to inspire and excite for your future travels. So all aboard,
we can’t wait to get you up and going.
This year, I’ve spent many hours on planes and quite a bit
of time onboard ships and I often meet our readers, which is
always a delight.
I was on the Orion on an expedition cruise to Borneo
when a man asked if my name was Bev. “How do you
know me?” “From Get Up & Go magazine.” And so we
travelled through Borneo and Indonesia together. The lovely
couple pictured are Bob and Elizabeth Amesbury of Sylvania
Waters, Sydney (below), long-time fans and subscribers to
Get Up & Go. Let’s hope we meet up again.
The other picture sums up my travelling year – eating
gelato in San Gimignano, Italy. Not that I ate gelato every
day, but the trips I took around the world offered up some
stunning cuisine –and that’s half the pleasure
of travel isn’t it? Good food.
Happy travels. •
